Rhys Adrian - Outpatient
BBC Radio 3
Broadcast: Wednesday 8th May 1985 @ 7:30 p.m.
"Outpatient" is a delightful play about two men waiting for their regular medical checks at a hospital. Though concerned about their
health, they contrive to keep cheerful and one shares their triumph when both come through with consoling news about themselves. The
supplementary pleasures include an incoherent tannoy making unintelligible anjouncements and two superb radio actresses as
distraught women: Sylvia Coleridge as the patient desperate not to miss her call and Margot Boyd as the nurse who keeps losing her
With Michael Aldridge [Mr. Garrity], Andrew Sachs [Mr. Smith], Sylvia Coleridge [Mrs. Jenkins], and Margot Boyd [The Nurse].
